Ground lemongrass/sereh as a basic ingredient for Asian dishes


Ground lemongrass or sereh comes from a tropical plant in the grass family. It has its origins in Asia, specifically in India. In the course of time, the herb has also gained fame in the rest of the world. We find it mainly in Asian dishes. It is also known under the Indonesian name serai and sometimes it is called citronella. The leaves of the plant are dried and ground. You can order ground lemon grass or sereh online at Natural Spices in a package of 1 or 4 kilos.



What does ground lemon grass taste like?


Ground lemon grass has a very specific flavour. It can best be described as sour, fresh and lemony. Or rather, its taste is reminiscent of both lemon and lime. Yet it also has a soft, creamy accent that resembles coconut. In addition to ginger, pepper and coriander, ground lemongrass or sereh is one of the flavours of Asian cuisine. The spice can also be called healthy. It has some advantages, for example it is rich in antioxidants and has an antibacterial effect. It has a beneficial effect on the functioning of your stomach and intestines and your immune system as well. The ground version of this spice has a slightly less strong flavour than the fresh sereh.



In which dishes do you use it?


Ground lemongrass or sereh is as said almost exclusively used in dishes of Asian origin. You often find it in curries and wok dishes, but also in marinades for fish, for example. It combines well with chicken, fish, honey and mango. When you use the spice warm, you always add it during cooking or stewing. The advantage of ground lemon grass or sereh is that you can serve your dish immediately after preparation. If you work with whole sereh, you first have to remove the spice. Chewing the relatively hard pieces is not very pleasant. A second advantage of buying ground lemongrass online is that it has a much longer shelf life than the fresh variety, which can often only be kept for a week in the refrigerator.
